5 Ways to amp up your holiday style, inspired by some of our favourite celebs
Zest it up
Christmas may be over, but the year-end celebrations are still underway. For your upcoming parties, we've compiled some of the most stylish celebrity party looks that you can easily emulate; get some style inspo from them and bid farewell to 2017 in style.
No thanks to feather boas, the fluffy trend may have earned a bad rep previously, but we're all for incorporating some of these details to spice up the plainest of outfits. Stars such as Hailey Baldwin, Sara Sampaio and Madelaine Petsch opt for feather-adorned looks for the night out in three different ways; Hailey goes for the sexy vixen feel, Sara exudes a sweet and girlie vibe, and Madelaine looks chic and polished.
The perfect alternative to dresses, count on the all-in-one look to keep you looking fly for your parties. Not only meant for casual occasions, we love how dolled up one can still look in the perfect piece—all you need is to select one with eye-catching details for added interest. Brittany Snow's puffed one-shoulder, Karolina Kurkova bold yellow and Michelle Dewberry's embellished pieces make them the ideal choice for a stylish night out.
The innerwear-as-outerwear trend is still sizzling, and we're following suit. Lace bralets, corsets and bustiers help to add that sultry feel to your party ensemble, and take a style cue from these celebs on how to nail it tastefully. Whether you go matchy-matchy à la Jourdan Dunn, show a hint of skin like Ming Xi in her rugged denim combo, or go sporty-cool in Demi Lovato's get-up, all you need to do is pick a sheer piece, layer it with your choice or lingerie underneath and you're good to go.
Nothing screams day-to-night perfection like a pair of pantsuit, but what we love most about the trend, is definitely its versatility. From velvet to jacquard material, and plain black to colourful hues, opt for a combo that reflects your style (and mood). Rita Ora finishes off her notice-me option with a pair of fun feather heels, while Alexandra Burke breaks off her velvet piece by layering a lacy bralet underneath. We love how Daisy Ridley gives her plain black look a spruce-me-up with sparkly brooches and embellished heels.
The festive season is never complete without some bling, and you can count on sequins to do the talking. Instead of panels of embellishment, tune up the style ante with full-on sparkle to close off the year with a bang. The three celebs don the shiny details in three different styles; Karlie Kloss goes edgy in a one-shoulder number, Ana Moya is baby blue dress gives off a refreshing flair, and Elizabeth Banks sticks to the sexy-glam route in a slip dress with thigh-high slit.
